Aurora Borealis Art

To finish our polar explorers topic, Miss Santos showed us how to create some amazing art work inspired by the Aurora Borealis. Have a look below at our fantastic creations!

African Drumming

This term we have been learning to play a type of African drum called a djembe. We have practised playing different rhythms and learnt how to change the dynamics and pitch on a drum. Year 2 were very impressed when we performed to them!

Captain Scott

In Topic, we have been learning about Robert Falcon Scott and his expedition to Antarctica over 100 years ago. We found out some of the reasons he and his team were beaten to the South Pole by the Norwegian team led by Roald Amundsen. Click on the picture below to find out more about Captain Scott from the Newsround website.

Non-chronological reports

Having written some super stories based on our class book Ice Palace, we are now looking at non-chronological reports in our English lessons. We read an example non-chronological report all about polar bears and created our own text maps to learn the phrases and vocabulary off by heart. We will be using this to write our own texts about other polar animals in the coming week.

Anti-Bullying Week 2017

We marked Anti-Bullying Week by discussing what bullying is and coming up with ways to help prevent it. We agreed that it is really important to tell a trusted adult if you or someone you know is being bullied. Click on the picture below to watch our anti-bullying lesson again:

School Council Elections

Well done to everyone who put themselves forward for school council. We heard some fantastic speeches, with so many exciting ideas for how we can improve the school. We all got to experience voting in secret using a real-life booth and ballot box. We are looking forward to our new school councillors sharing our ideas at their first meeting soon!

Class Assembly

Well done Year 3 for a fantastic class assembly! You have worked so hard this term and it was lovely to be able to share all the learning you have been doing. You can watch our performance of the Magic Travel Machine below:

Black History Month

This month it was Black History Month. We learnt about Rosa Parks and what she did to help end racial segregation in America. We used a drama technique called Freeze Framing to act out a scene from the story and then wrote our own diary entries. Here are our Freeze Frames of the day Rosa Parks did not give up her seat on the bus and started the famous Bus Boycott:

Dear Year 3s,

Welcome to the Year 3 class page! We hope you all have had a wonderful summer and are excited about coming back to school. We are really looking forward to seeing you all again on Wednesday and getting to know you better over the coming term. We have been working hard to get our new classroom ready and can't wait for you to see it!
